Many people don’t consider a chandelier as a lighting option but really, chandeliers are actually quite versatile. As a writer who focuses mainly on interior design and home improvement, I’ve seen chandeliers used in nearly every room in the house. I’ve even seen one clever use of a chandelier inside a large walk-in closet/dressing room. So, when you’re decorating a room, remember that lighting is important and that a chandelier is an unexpected statement piece that really could work in any room (as long as you find the right chandelier.) Here are a few websites that offer up a variety of different chandeliers.
This website is a general home improvement retailer, so they offer up items for every room in the home. That aside, they do have a decent selection of chandeliers where are divided into sections: up lighting chandeliers (i.e., the lights point upward toward the ceiling,) down lighting chandeliers (meaning the lights point down toward the floor,) combination up/down chandeliers, crystal chandeliers, covered chandeliers and even a theme category where you can choose between specific styles such as contemporary or oriental.
As a member of the Y generation, I’m well aware that we need to make an effort to be a little friendly to the environment. Eco-Lights.com is a website that focuses on a large selection of energy efficient lighting options, including chandeliers. So, if energy star rated lights are a must-have for you, this might be the website for you. Plus, they’ve got plenty of styles so you don’t need to compromise style for the environment.
LightingDirect.com has over 13,000 different chandeliers, so if you haven’t found the right chandelier at another website or store, then you might find it here. They help you narrow down the selection quickly and easily by letting you choose between finishes, styles, price, light direction, number of lights and so forth; so you’re sure to find the perfect match in your price range.
This particular website jumps straight to the point with chandeliers, making it a bit overwhelming at first. However, they do allow you to narrow down the selection much like the LightingDirect.com website does using price range, style and finish.
SimplyChandeliers.com is a specialized website that puts the focus directly onto selling chandeliers. In fact, you won’t find any other items for sale on this website aside from chandeliers, not even different types of lighting; which can make things difficult if you want to compare lighting choices. They do feature categories such as mini chandeliers, dining room chandeliers, foyer chandeliers or you can divide things up by price, number of lights or style.
